OUR SERIAL STORY "The Matcher" CHAPTER XXII [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 29 January 1948

OUR SERIAL STORY "The Matcher" BY FRANK GILBERT CHAPTER XXII Marcelle Vedrine, silent for a while after "the Matcher" had hurled his question at her, felt very much afraid,   and, hardly knowing what to say, was immensely relieved when the man said sullenly : "I shall have to think what I can do about you."   She retired, and presently "the   Matcher" decided to speak again to Newland, but discovered that the con- necting installation was out of order. "Strange!" he muttered, and went out to investigate. Then came the fur- ther discoveries. First that his pri- soner was escaping, and then that he had actually got clear away. Mobilis- ing all the available staff "the Matcher" began the hunt which, how-   ever, proved futile. At length, angry   and ill-tempered, he came back once   more to his sanctum, and, calling for Marcelle, gave her instructions to go at once to London and trace the girl Barry. "She kno...

Medical Discovery British Anti-Lewisite WARTIME SUCCESS [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 29 January 1948

Medical Discovery _______     British Anti-Lewisite WARTIME SUCCESS An important British medical dis-   covery, to be known as B.A.L., is an- nounced by the Medical Research Coun- cil of Britain. The initials stand for   British anti-lewisite, and its appear-   ance is expected to enable arsenic to be fully exploited as a drug. Doctors have known for years that arsenic kills some germs more efficiently than any other substance. They know,   for instance, that it is of great value in treating chronic skin complaints and nervous diseases. The use of arsenic, however, has been limited by its own terrible effects on human tissues. The arrival of B.A.L. means that these effects can be quickly overcome and often prevented. The Medical Research Council reports striking successes in forty-four cases of poisoning by arsenic. Of these thirty —one responded to to the new treatment in a remarkable way. The Council's c...

Wool Auctions in London A Multitude of Impressions SERVICE OF BROKERS (Contributed) [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 29 January 1948

Wool Auctions in London _______________       A Multitude of Impressions   ________   SERVICE OF BROKERS   (Contributed)   A first visit to the wool sales in Lon- on leaves a multitude of impressions on the newcomer's mind. The speed   at which the lots are sold, the sharp staccato bidding, the throng of closely packed buyers exuding an everthicken- ing cloud of tobacco smoke, and the incessant undercurrent of conversation between buyers, their clients and friends, all combine to confuse the mind of the inexperienced. At one stage, when several similar lots were being offered consecutively, the bidding was extremely rapid and   raucous. No sooner had the auctioneer tapped his hammer on the desk to indicate the sale of one lot, than half-a- dozen or more buyers leapt to their feet, thrust up their arms to catch the auctioneer's eye and bid frantically for the next. Its...

Australian Harvest Gigantic Transport Problem WHEAT BOARD'S TASK More than four hundred voyages will     be necessary to lift Australia's record       wheat crop. The ships will carry   3,750,000 tons of grain.

Higher Living Costs Depreciation of the Pound CONTROL BROKEN DOWN Canberra, January 31. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 31 January 1948

Higher Living Costs Depreciation of the Pound CONTROL BROKEN DOWN Canberra, January 31. The Australian pound will now buy as much as 14/- at the outbreak -of the war. Rises in the price level are now conspicuous. Authoritative figures made available by the Commonwealth Statistician indicate an over-all price rise of 40 per cent, since June, 1939. The most conspicuous feature of the cost of living records for the last two years is the fact that the effective con trol, which was maintained throughout the war, has now broken down. Retail prices increased 5 per cent, between June and December, 1947. Yet the. maximum increase in- any one year between June, 1940, and June, 1947, was only S per cent. Australian figures, however, compare well with those in Great Britain, wThere according to Sir Stafford Cripps the British p-mnd is worth only 60 per cent cf its 1939 value. The following figures, based ou the all-series index, shows the percentage rise in the cost of living in Australia at re...

Australians Returned ? «. ? Reasons for Resentment GUAM'S NIGHT LIFE Brisbane, January 31. Eight Australian girls brought back from Guam did not want to return because they were having a wonderful time. This is the opinion of a member of the crew of the American Skyiuaster, which brought a party of twenty-nine men and women back from the island. Engineer Staff-Sergeant W. It. Sinith said that the night life on Guam was excellent. There were few women there and the Australians were very popular. The Skymaster commander (Colonel W. R. Calhoun) was more cautious. There was quite a bit of night life, he said. It may have been this and the good working conditions which held the girls. ? '

Sheffield Shield Cricket Miller's Bright Innings A N.S.W. COLLAPSE Sydney. January 31. After winning the toss, D. K.

The commencement of the game was delayed owing to heavy rain during the morning until 4.35 p.m., and apprehensive of the possible behaviour of the wicket Carmody was taking no chances. However, the turf played true and when the New South Welshmen had scored 104 for the loss of one wicket before stumps were drawn, Western Australia had lost the advantage gained by the captain in winning the toss. The not out batsnien, Miller (46) and Donaldson (39), continued the innings when play was resumed this morning and the partnership continued to add 262 runs to the total before Donaldson, was clean-bowled by a beautiful deliv ery by Cuniming.
